Carbine Studios, the developer of the massively multiplayer online game WildStar, is shutting down, Kotaku has learned. Fifty people will lose their jobs in the process, according to a person briefed on the shutdown. The game will also come to a close.
WildStar developer Carbine Studios laid off a number of people today, publisher NCSoft confirmed to Kotaku this afternoon. The company says they “remain committed” to updating and maintaining service on their sci-fi MMO.
Signing up for a new subscription-based MMORPG is a big decision, especially when it's an untested brand like Carbine's colorful WildStar. MMORPG.com helpfully recorded the first 15 minutes of beta play, which just might help your decision along.
Featuring a cartonny sci-fi art style, WildStar is the latest MMORPG from NCSoft. The game is being developed by Carbine.
